Speaking of weekends, I’m in late to work tomorrow thanks to a cool boss who is appreciative of “smart” working in place of “pretend working when nothing is happening.” So I’ll hit up the bike tomorrow morning for a ride before I go in. I’ll be staying late for some meetings, but a couple hours in the saddle will take the place of a night run.
Saturday is a bike day, and I hope to complete something in the 80-mile range. Warm temps and nothing-to-do’s have me stoked for an enjoyable ride. On Sunday, our Honolulu marathon participants are running 20 miles, and our AZ half and fulls are running 10 and 16. So I am bound for a fairly big mileage day and a fairly hearty breakfast afterward. This week, however, I won’t be dressed as an egg.
Yeah, this is an update-on-me post that is kind of lacking in the philosophy department. All I can say is that I am happy to be running regularly. No injuries (knocking on wood) and no reasons not to. Today’s 2-a-day workout was a good reminder that I am lucky to be able to do what we do: run.
And as a runner, an athlete, a worker, a person ... I can ask only for the opportunity to find my potential, take advantage of opportunities, and "burn, burn, burn" so that I live my life to its max.
I want to be all that I am capable of becoming. --Katherine Mansfield
